On offer is a fascinating pair [2] of original Civil War Era manuscript diaries handwritten by a late teenage, then 20 year old woman named Sara H. Wymond of Brooklyn New York and then later at Deer Park Female Institute, Port Jervis, New York to West Chester and Pittsfield Massachusetts. The books are a charming combination of her personal thoughts and activities, friends socialized with, as well as she pours out her sensibilities of happiness and unhappiness, [depending upon her then present living circumstances] with poetry and copied excerpts of readings she loved. Sara proves to be an introspective young woman perhaps internalizing too many of her problems. Moving schools was an alienating experience and something she might have sought counselling in modern times. The dates range from 1862 - 1866 thusly right in the Civil War times but they hardly seem to affect her at all. Square 8vo, leather backed marbled boards, mild rubbing, approximately 60 pages and 64 pages all told. Overall G.
